AG96: Scavino's 1999 Barolo Carobric explodes from the glass with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint, licorice and sweet tobacco. Impeccable and layered, the 1999 impresses for its exceptional balance and pure sensuality. In magnum, the Carobric is still very, very young. Readers lucky enough to own it are in for a real treat. This is a dazzling, total mesmerizing Barolo from the Scavino family.
WS93: Aromas of crushed blackberries, with hints of lemon grass and rose bush. Full-bodied, with full tannins that are ultra-fine and have great length. It goes on for minutes. Very well-done. This is a blend of vineyards and very fine indeed.
